Surveying technician apprenticeship

Surveying technician apprenticeship

Surveying covers every aspect of land, property and construction, and a Surveying Technician apprenticeship offers a wide variety of career options.

In the land sector, surveyors can work as environmental specialists and waste management experts, while working in property provides opportunities to play a part in every aspect of the development, purchase, sale and management of property – both commercial and residential. The good judgement of a surveyor helps ensure that construction projects run smoothly and on budget.

Whichever sector you work in, your duties as a surveying technician will include: collecting information from inspections or visits to buildings, land and construction sites; taking measurements of buildings, land or plans; meeting other professionals and clients to obtain and provide information relating to land, property or construction; collecting and recording data relating to land, buildings or construction for technical use; costings using data collected from research; and ensuring a safe working environment for yourself and others.

Most employers will ask you to have five GCSEs at grade C or higher, including maths and English, or a Level 2 qualification in a construction or property-related discipline. The apprenticeship will typically take two years to complete and at the end of it you will become an associate member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (AssocRICS).
